Cheers To Groundhog Day Cocktails

Groundhog Day may not seem like an occasion worthy of celebrating. But trust me, if I hear there will be six more weeks of winter, I'll be in need of a cocktail. On the other hand, if I hear spring is just around the corner, I'll want a cocktail to celebrate the good news.
